Hello there,

Thanks to everyone that responded.  Thank-you Eric for showing me MY ALGEBRA
ERROR!  Geesh!  I apologize.

Again - thank-you,

It actually does work, but I think the problem is with your matrix
indexing.  See the sample below.

You could also check out ?seq, ?rep, and ?apply for solving this problem
with fewer lines of code.

n.max <- 300
NUM <- 25

n.sim <- 10
j <- (n.max/NUM)*n.sim

results <- matrix(0, nrow=j, ncol=2)

while(NUM <= n.max){

for(i in 1:n.sim){

k <- (NUM/25)*i

results[((NUM / 25) - 1) * n.sim + i, 1] <- k
results[((NUM / 25) - 1) * n.sim + i, 2] <- NUM
cat("Iteration", i, ": NUM=", NUM, "k=", k, "\n")

}

NUM <- NUM + 25
}
